Superbeast...it may have super in the title, but it most certainly is not.
9 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie, but it certainly did not make a lasting impression other than that it was rather boring. I think I sort of drifted in and out of sleep while watching it. Saw it on Monstervision with Joe Bob Briggs and he warned that this movie was going to be bad. Bad really is an understatement here, it is not even in the so bad it is good category like so many Italian zombie flicks like "Hell of the Living Dead" or "After Death". The movie's premise is sort of similar to an "Island of Dr. Moreau" which I never cared for that format of movie anyways. To make matters worse, this movie is the worst I have ever seen of that particular format. Add to that, the fact virtually nothing went on in the entire movie and it is not very memorable to boot. I seem to recall the so called superbeast of the title making an appearance near the end of the movie. Suffice to say, I do believe it was a rather brief appearance and not anything that added anything to this yawn fest. The only thing good about the whole movie was the breaks when Joe Bob would make fun of how bad the movie was. I do not even think the gang of Mystery Science Theater 3000 could have made this one tolerable to watch.
